Editorial Reviews

Review

"Durrani and Kalaugher approach their captivating material in a lighthearted fashion . . . The examples are often fascinating, but Durrani and Kalaugher’s larger message about the need to integrate the sciences is far more important." - Publishers Weekly

"Light science reading that informs while it entertains." - Kirkus Reviews

“Readers don't need a background in physics to enjoy this engaging, educational title. Recommended for fans of popular science, including YA audiences.” - School Library Journal

“Many readers will see the word physics in the subtitle and sheer away from this captivating work, but even the most phobic will be reassured as scientists and science editors Durrani and Kalaugher demonstrate how animals use physics in their daily lives.” - Nancy Bent, Booklist

"A fun, informative chronicle of how myriad animals take advantage of the laws of physics." - Science News

"Furry Logic is an important book that is equally inspiring and humbling." - Science
